<p>I'm looking forward to my new seed catalogs this year since I will have my own garden again.  <span><img alt="ROTFLMAO.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif"></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I went to the resources at the top of the page and clicked on every seed company not associated with the devil and will have a ton of catalogs sent my way soon. <span><img alt="thumb.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif"></span>  I wish I had remembered sooner since I know Baker Creek usually sends out there catalog usually this week.  From what I hear they have lots of new seeds in their new catalog</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I can't wait!!!!!!<span><img alt="treehugger.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/treehugger.gif"></span></p>

<p>If I ordered from Baker Creek last year, will I automatically get a catalog this year?  Or do I need to request another one?  I was just thinking of this earlier because I was out tidying up my gardens for winter finally.  I'm so excited to start planning for next year already :)</p>

<p>I ordered from Baker Creek in 2009 and automatically got my catalog in 2010.  Now I'm excited about getting the new catalog.  I'll have to run over to idig and find out when the new catalog gets shipped.</p>

<p>Hooray for seed catalogs! The weather is certainly turning here, and I'm looking forward to cuddling up in front of the fireplace with a cup of cocoa and a lap full of catalogs. :) Enjoy those catalogs, Cathy. How big is the new garden?</p>

<p>I just read that the first Baker Creek catalogs are going to be mailed tomorrow.  Anyone who ordered last year or requested a catalog a month or more ago will be in the first mailing. <span><img alt="joy.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/joy.gif">  I can't wait to get mine.</span></p>

<p>I just requested a ton of catalogs too! <span><img alt="biggrinbounce.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/biggrinbounce.gif">I can't wait til they all start coming in. So I can start planning. </span> We bought our first home and I'm planning on having my first garden next year.  At first I was just going to do a flower and herb garden but now I'm leaning towards only planting edibles (well, with perhaps a few exceptions I'd like some cutting flowers too).  I have hopes of eventually having veggies, fruits, fruit trees (if I can find some good dwarf apple, cherry, and peach ones that will grow in 6a/b) herbs, edible flowers, etc.  all growing in our yard.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Any suggestions for a beginner will be welcome, I'm sure that I'll have questions and be lurking around here a lot next spring (You know, when I realize I'm in over my head <span><img alt="winky.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/winky.gif">)</span></p>

<p>I have a lot of ambition, let's see if have equal amounts of gumption! <span><img alt="winky.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/winky.gif"></span></p>

<br><br><p>Yes, and today it snowed and I was looking at my irish eyes catalog I just got, but it is from 2010, though I needed to get on their mailing list, very nice.  My garden isn't very big this year, maybe 50x50, but still a good size for my family.  <span><img alt="orngbiggrin.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif"></span></p>

I got my Baker Creek on Saturday. I'm already working on my list of seeds I *need* for next year's garden. Once again BC put out a beautiful catalog.

<p>It sounds great, Kathy!</p>

<p>So far, I have only Fedco, and with the storm we had this weekend, I've been through it once already. I am so tempted to order up a Baker's Creek, because it is so beautiful, but I'm relatively certain I'll just be ordering from Fedco this year, so I'd feel too guilty requesting one. *sigh*</p>

<p>I got my Baker Creek catalog yesterday. This is a high point of every year. I already have a pretty lengthy list of tomatoes. I want to try out some of those new "icecicle" variety! LOVE them.</p>

<p>I'm trying to pull back on my tomatoes this year.  I must have planted 25 different varieties last year.  I think I'll go with just a few varieties this year. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>After looking at their catalog, I really want to try the perpetual spinach chard and the large sweet antigua peppers.</p>

<p>I got my Baker Creek catalog last week, and my Nichols catalog like 2-3 weeks ago.  'Tis the season!   :D </p>
<p>Glad BC finally decided to label the photos with whatever variety the item is/was - that was confusing in the past.<br><br>
(the sad thing is that I don't need a whole lot - between past years of buying/trading/seed-saving I've got a bunch of goods...)</p>

<p>never posted in gardening on mdc...but had to share the joy. Got my bakers creek yesterday for the first time and I was literally drooling as I read through it. I never knew love came in the form of a seed catalog. lol. Cannot wait to move in 2 years so that I can have a supersized garden!! Right now I have a small 1/2 shady one row size bed and as many pots as I want....</p>

<p>I have a pretty big pile going of catalogs.  I think I'm going to wait until my son goes to his dads to start looking through them.</p>

<p>I have been getting catalogs every week now.My only disappointment has been the price increase in the seed packets. I will be buying a lot less this year and trying to swap seeds with others.</p>
